Both reached agreements Saturday, following the end of the NFL draft. They joined former Tech defensive end Anree Saint-Amour in earning a chance at NFL jobs, as Saint-Amour signed as an undrafted free agent with the Minnesota Vikings Saturday. No Tech players were drafted.
For both Marshall and Branch, it’s the first step to earning a spot on NFL offseason rosters. For their rookie mini-camps, teams bring their drafted players as well as players signed as undrafted free agents and can also invite additional players for tryouts. The tryout players can be signed to the roster from their performance at the mini-camps.
